2-8, The Parade, HM Naval Base, Portsmouth - Portsmouth, City of (UA)

Terrace of dockyard officers' lodgings, 1715-19. Partially converted to office use c1995, but now empty. Prone to wet rot and some structural movement. Background heating has been introduced, reducing damp levels. However, problems persist between the main building and the rear extensions. There is extensive decay in panelling and some plaster ceilings have collapsed. It is hoped that the Ward Room of HMS Nelson will be relocated into the historic dockyard which would bring this building back into use as officer accommodation. This final decision is yet to be made.
